5.Rf7+ Kg6 6.Rf8 Bxe7 7.Rc8 Bxd6 8.Rc6+-

Hey..I solved this study without knowing it!!..just thought it was a side variation..Nice variation of course, but nothing compared to a8(Q) Nb6 Kxb8 Nxa8 Kb7! from 2 weeks before.

I completely agree ; this study is nothing special. This column is generally excellent, though.
